A stranger came to town
Asking questions about your whereabouts
I told him that you'd gone to Pennsylvania

But he won't be fooled for long
No, he won't be foold for long
No, he won't be fooled for long, my love.

My love...

I wish you could just say
What really happened
But they'd lock you away for good
Supposing that we drive to California

But we won't be fooled for long
No, we won't be fooled for long
No, we won't be fooled for long, my love.

My love...

Well, maybe when this all blows over
You can take me out again
And we can just pretend
This never happened

But we won't be fooled for long
No, we won't be fooled for long
No, we won't be fooled for long, my love.

My love...
My love...

    General CommentMoving song! it has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives this song a big boost. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.

    In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, it hits a new peak of professionalism. I think it's an epic meditation on monogamy and commitment, questioning a woman's loyalty. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of love, while the brilliant ensemble playing conveys some emotional suffering. In this song Haskins confronts "his love" about her faithfulness.
